My wife and I went to see this in 3D. The movie was okay, not amazing, but not horrible. I will not own the movie when it comes out on blue-ray.
The story was fun and moved along fairly well. The action was fairly believable. There were no scenes where I thought "Wow, the CG was really bad there".
Overall, I would say to see the movie, but I would wait until it comes to your local "dollar theater" or comes out on blue-ray/DVD.

Good acting, story, effects, and very good 3D. Only annoying thing was the use of 20th century slang in a 19th century story taking place, for the most part, in the area of Augsburg, Germany. Other anachronisms, such as an apparent use of insulin injections (seriously!) had nothing much to do with the story until the---well, you'll see why they contrived that whole thing without really needing to...
You'll see some Van Helsing-influenced gadgetry and, as you would expect, some Brothers Grimm imagery, but it's great. Well worth the money and the 85 minutes watching. Beware that the shortness of the film means that you're going to suffer twenty minutes worth of previews, etc., before the movie starts...

The fight sequences are were great. Those witches were kicking Hansel and Gretal's butt. I was funny and violent at the same time. Not for children at all.

The movie was just ok, I could have waited to catch it on DVD, it was not the worst movie ever, it was just a little dry after awhile, the action was good but other than that I really can't say anything to be excited about.

The special effects were great. The story was a bit too easy to figure out. It seemed to take too long to show that Gretel was in line to become a white witch.
I loved the brooms and the effects showing how the witches cast spells on their victims.
